Bitcoin: Are You Your Escape from the Decentralized System?

Thread . . . My interest in Bitcoin is much less as an investment than it is about freedom. Bitcoin separates money from state.

BTC is the equivalent of the 2nd Amendment for your money.

Bitcoin protects your money from the corrupt government fiat money printing press --

which steals a bit more of your money each and every day.

Bitcoin is also your off-ramp from a corrupt political and economic system in the event of the inevitable economic and societal collapse.

With our 32 TRILLION national debt, rapidly heading to 100 TRILLION, collapse seems inevitable -- Weimar Republic style.

And likely soon.

The premise of Bitcoin at its inception in 2008 was this: Whoever controls your money controls you.

The early creator or creators of Bitcoin also saw Bitcoin as protection from an emerging digital prison being created by Big Tech in partnership with Big Government.

Bitcoin is your escape hatch, your off-ramp from this.

Bitcoin has shown itself to be remarkably resilient, perhaps indestructible.

China tried to destroy Bitcoin in the summer of 2021 by outlawing Bitcoin mining and transactions.

China failed.

So Bitcoin not only survived a state attack by the world's biggest country, and by a totalitarian regime.

Bitcoin did not miss a beat.

But let's say all the governments of the world somehow got together to outlaw Bitcoin.

Very unlikely this could happen.

But let's say it happened.

Bitcoin still could not be destroyed because if just one copy of the Bitcoin ledger exists somewhere, Bitcoin still exists.

The network will always grow back.

And if that happened, how much more valuable would owning one bitcoin become?

It would have the value of a canteen of water in the middle of the Sahara Desert.
